Smallville Is Gone…Forever

20 May

I’ve noticed in my site stats that many of the search terms that direct people to my blog are asking if Smallville has been cancelled. The answer is yes. Smallville ended its series last week, Friday May 13th, 2011.  The show lasted for 10 years and it was the longest running Sci-Fi series in American history.

For those of you new to the world of Smallville or have no clue of what I am talking about, let me give you a little information.  Smallville is the story of Clark Kent before he becomes Superman.  The series takes us from the meteor shower where Martha and Johnathan Kent find Clark to the day Clark accepts his destiny and takes to the skies as Superman.

So, for the people who keep searching “smallville cancelled 2011” you will be disappointed to find the truth.  As to why, I personally believe it was just time.  Ten years is a long time to keep a show going and to keep fans happy. Considering this show was all about the life of Superman before he was Superman means that once Clark became Superman the show was complete.

Who knows, maybe one day we will see a spin-off series. At least the fans hope so!


Smallville Was Cancelled This Week…WTF??

29 Jan

This is my vent session.  I suppose it’s good that the only thing that I really want to vent about is the fact that my favorite show ever was pushed back one more week.  I’m sure it sounds silly, but I would rather vent about something that won’t really affect me in the long run as opposed to something that I probably will always be angry about, like our government.  But, I’m not going to go there.  I want to keep my vent somewhat light-hearted.

As I have mentioned in an earlier post, I love Smallville.  Addicted really.  The first season is on my TV now as background noise.  Quick synopsis: Smallville is about the early days of Clark Kent.  He is trying to discover who he is and what destiny has in store for him.  If you have never seen it, but love Superman, I suggest you watch it,  You won’t be disappointed.

Anyways, Smallville took a holiday hiatus and after six weeks of much anticipation the CW network decided to pull it at the last-minute and push it back one more week.  I was infurriated, as was the rest of my household (Paige and Layla).  This is the one show we all sit down and watch as a family.  We are so dedicated in fact that the rest of our friends and family know on Fridays from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. we are not to be bothered.  Unless in extreme cases of emergency.  Not kidding.

We still don’t know the reason CW cancelled Smallville  last night.  Some say it was because American Idol was on and they didn’t want Smallville to lose viewers because of it.  FYI: Smallville fans are completely dedicated to Smallville.  Most fans have watched since the show started 10 years ago.  Yes, ten years!  Just because some silly talent show (don’t get me wrong I love American Idol, but that’s a later post) is on TV doesn’t mean fans will just stop watching.  Especially after 6 weeks of previews and hype about the amazing new episode.

Fans were outraged.  I checked out discussion boards on Facebook and people were pissed.  I understand.  It was like a slap in the face and they only reported the cancellation about 15 hours before the show was supposed to air. I’m not so angry about it now.  One more week and my beloved show will be back, but my heart was crushed for a moment by CW’s lack of compassion.
